Beastie boys in their prime!
I once saw arrested development WAY past their prime and they were absolutely amazing live.

A long time ago I saw MXPX live. They were one of my favorite bands at that time. They played way harder and faster than their albums which was dope. The thing that got me was that they never stopped playing the entire time, even when they were talking someone in the band was either playing a riff or a drum beat. They all traded instruments for a couple of songs in the middle of the show. While the exchange was going on they were still playing while handing them off. Probably one of the coolest shows I’ve ever seen.

The Last Waltz for sure. From the time I was a young kid into my early adulthood my family would always get together stop whatever we were doing and watch at least a couple songs from it every Thanksgiving.

We once ran a small hip hop venue and the best live shows we hosted were Method Man, Das EFX and Onyx. These guys really made the crowd go wild. This was all around 2005ish.

In the Hardcore/punkrock sector some of the more intense shows I remember were Madball, The New Bomb Turks, Dropkick Murphys or local band Cwill.

I would have to reminisce, I saw so many shows but a lot of it is lost in a haze of alcohol and weed smoke unfortunately.
why come?

Fugazi in their heyday would have been magical too, I’ve heard they never had set lists so they would just jam straight into the next song.

I saw them on one of their last tours and I think I still have ringing in my ears from the show.

The National puts on a really great show. I've liked them for years, but last year was the first time I had a chance to see them. Seeing them again in Denver in August. Show last year was at a festival, so it will be cool to see them at an actual venue.

 You and the D00D have turned this thread into a horrible head-on-collision between a short bus full of regular kids and a van full of paraplegics.

Ima say some polar opposites but Neurosis and Tom Tom Club were two of the most amazing shows I've ever seen.

Tom tom club would have been sick!!!

Dandy Warhols in a really small venue.
Pavement 1st reunion gig 10 or so years ago in Auckland NZ. Support was the 3ds !!! Amazing. 

BB King on Beale Street for new years eve 1999/2000. Heaps of doomsayers and the end is nigh.

Blues musicians at Juniors Juke joint in the Mississippi.  This changed my life forevermore.  Drinking moonshine, wailing, instruments breaking under a voodo fog. So much culture for a 20 year old from NZ.
They laughed when I told my friends that I was going to be a comedian.....well they are not laughing now!

yeah wow on tom tom club! jealous.

for me, prince aftershow/party thing in brisbane, australia 2012. I saw him 4 times over the 2 weeks he was here - but this was wild. so he played like, brisbane, sydney, melbourne one week, then did it over again the next week - which i think is a cool way to tour australia. anyway - the first week in brisbane he played at some club after the arena show. that was amazing and beautiful, but yeah, so i bought another ticket (front row) for the second week show off another super fan from the prince forums - but then i won a facebook competition run by the promoters where you had to explain using prince lyrics why you should get the tickets or whatever. so i ended up with 3 front row tickets - so i took my brother and my best mate.

halfway through the actual stadium show the dude i bought the original ticket off sent me a text saying he had the heads up on the aftershow/party thing - so we stayed until pretty much the end but left during the last song which was a weird feeling and just went where the dude told me to go. we got to this place - it was an RSL club (that's like an army veterans club - i don't know if that's a thing elsewhere in the world) and S Club 7 were actually in the middle of a show there. S Club 7's show got stopped early and all their fans/ticketholders had to leave. S Club 7 stayed and were up in this VIP balcony section. There were less than 100 people there and he played acoustic versions and deepcuts - a lot of it was without the band - from like 11pm til 6am and I got to stand there like 2 metres from him while he played some of my favourite songs.

to drive the point home - this is after watching him put on a hell of a stage show for 3 hours before this (also got to listen to soundcheck for like an hour or so before those 3 hours). and all of that is after seeing almost the same thing (not the same songs - but the same level of performance - the aftershow the week before was much shorter and much more packed) a week before!

just totally blows my mind that he did that every time he played anywhere from the early 80s until 2016. no one compares to prince.

The Highwaymen playing at the Nassau Coliseum in 1990. Waylon, Willie, Cash and Kristofferson. There's a playlist of the whole thing on youtube. The energy is just so good. All of their personalities, their absolute love for the music they play and their friendship is on display and it's just perfect. This is as good as mainstream music ever got imo.

Out of the hundreds of bands I've seen play live, I was most impressed by Dinosaur Jr. and how on point they are considering their age and how long they've been at it.

This whole thread could be ween and frank black as far as I'm concerned. 

Any song from Ween at Wetlands could go here.  I saw them in 92 and nothing can be said about it.

This is a good Frank one.  Pretty sure he died on stage for a while.

Saw fugazi a couple times in the early 90’s, really fucking good! And the No set list thing always amazes me. This is a damn good live performance right here too!

Actually this has to be my favorite live performance from them actually

Mainly because technic turntables are becoming harder to get and DJ no longer using vinyl and understanding needle skipping issues

Got a near perfect score

i saw ...and you will know us by the trail of dead live a bunch of times, and they were fantastic each time.

the roots was my first concert ever, it was spectacular to me. rahzel with the live beatboxing too. awesome.

i also saw delasoul live once, again absolutely legendary performance, but the ride home was horrible. literally one of the worst nights ever because of that and it makes me forget i actually saw dela live.

also i saw basically lootpack live. they weren't announced as such, but they were all there and performed a lot of soundpieces: da antidote. it was like a stones throw thing with wildchild and dj romes and also declaime, but for some reason fucking madlib was also there. crazy stuff. this was super small and during the week and i was literally there by chance.

pinback was one of the best live shows ever, just a super wholesome and almost cozy vibe and great performance.

i was lucky to see a rocket from the crypt reunion show in berlin thanks to some skatebuddies who gave me the ticket of a friend who got sick. needless to say it was one of the greatest rocknroll shows i ever witnessed.

also a special mention needs to go to looptroop(rockers). i think i saw no other band live as many times as looptroop. maybe trail of dead. i probably saw both these bands live four times at least. looptroop were so much fun live in their heyday. afterwards you felt more like after a hardcore show than like after a hiphop show.

so i obviously already mentioned my prince experiences, but just saw this thread again forgetting I'd already posted in it, and was not automatically thinking prince but actually bryan ferry. so classy, so tasteful, so perfect without rigidity and also had such a great band made of all australian artists who i'd not heard before. i assume he gets a band together wherever he travels too. it was genuinely magical - very ferry.
